star trek cat

When you’re fostering a kitten in the month of October, I think it should be a rule that you have to put said kitten into a costume. Instagram user and foster pet mom shadowkatt is making sure her charge is prepared for Halloween in this wonderful Star Trek costume. The kitten is the amazing LeVar Purrton, also known as Geordi La Forge. This is too adorable for words.

trek jewelry 1

Step boldly into fashion with RockLove’s chic sterling silver Star Trek collection. The company’s new line definitely has something that will catch the eye of any Trek fan; there are rings, necklaces, key rings, and pendants.

The designs feature the Enterprise (that docking ring pictured above is so creative), a phaser, a Klingon medallion, and some bands that feature quotes from the classic opening. The jewelry hits that sweet spot of being geeky but also classy enough to wear for any occasion.

You can pre-order any item in the collection now, and the jewelry will ship on November 15th.

More of the shinies after the break.

Klingons look tough, and they’re all about war and stuff, but do you know what they like to do in their spare time? They love to tie-dye. Honestly, they do! They tie-dye shirts, or they tie-dye hankies and wrap them around their bat’leths–honestly, if you can tie-dye it, the Klingons have already probably done it. In fact, “Today is a good day to die” has been incorrectly translated. It’s actually properly translated as “Today is a good day to dye.” Got it?

Thinking of dressing up like a member of Starfleet this Halloween? Then you’ll want this handy infographic from costumesupercenter.com to help you make sure you’ve got the right look for the right crew. They’ve got both mens and womens uniforms from the mini skirts of the very first episodes right on up to the sexy gray suit for Seven of Nine.

Stormtrooper Klingon Ballerinas

Take the attributes of Stomtroopers and Klingons then make them graceful and nimble. They’re the ultimate villains.

Indeed, there’s mash-up cosplay, and then there’s this combination of Star Trek, Star Wars, and ballet. I can tell the photo was taken at the Hyatt or the Marriott at Dragon Con, and that is exactly the sort of place you would see Klingon Stormtrooper ballerinas. I hope they have a choreographed routine.

Star Trek: The Next Generation is my favorite of the Trek series and also has my favorite Trek uniforms. These A-line dresses capture everything I love about the design while looking very comfortable. They come in command red, science blue, and security gold. No one will judge if you buy all three – they’re perfect for casual cosplay and also everyday wear! Just don’t go on any special missions while you’re wearing the red dress.

Rene Auberjonois recently shared this rather horrifying picture on twitter so we’d have enough nightmare fuel to make it until Halloween. It shows the Star Trek actor in the process of removing the makeup that turned him into a Changeling.

He said it took about two and a half hours to turn him into Odo, and that he couldn’t wait to take the masks off at the end of the day. Still, he kept a few when the show ended. Now he’s using them to raise money for a good cause, as he’s auctioning one of the masks to support Doctors Without Borders.

bat'leth scarf 1

The only way to prepare for cold weather is to arm yourself with warm clothing. I can’t think of anything more fierce than this Klingon Bat’leth scarf designed by Kimberly Gintar. You can stretch out the weapon and wield it and then wrap it around your neck. You can admire it or make your own because the pattern is available for purchase.

See a couple more photos of the scarf after the break.

Enterprise NCC1701 messenger bag

As a sucker for messenger bags, I can’t have just one. In the case of this Star Trek Enterprise NCC-1701 messenger bag, you get something that lets you show your Star Trek love with a front flap that depicts the hull of the NCC-1701 and custom buckle hardware inspired by the auxiliary engine.

It measures 18-inches long x 12-inches tall x 5 1/2-inches wide and has flap pockets, zipper storage, and an inner padded pocket that can fit a laptop measuring up to 15-inches long.

This gorgeous messenger bag is the only logical choice for Star Trek fans. It features the Vulcan salute carved into the leather with the the words “Live Long and Prosper” handstamped around it in a circle. From the product page:

This Star Trek inspired laptop bag is made to accommodate a laptop that is 15″X11″X3″ or less. This includes enough room for your computer and you charger cord as well as several small items. It can also be used as a messenger bag for school books. It is made from vegetable tanned leather which is fairly non-pliant and very tough. I hand stitch it with nylon sinew that has at least 70 test.

This is made-to-order so you can even customize it with pockets or a lining to make it the perfect bag for your needs.
